Property Management System Audit Property Management System (PMS) Audit Definitions: Property Management System Audit-A systematic objective review and evaluation of a Contractors property management system (PMS) including both the procedures and the application, implementation and compliance with: –The Government Property Clause –The terms and conditions of the contract, and –Any customary commercial practices, voluntary consensus standards, or industry leading practices selected by the Contractor for incorporation and application in the PMS.
Property Management System Audit PROPERTY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (PMS) The system that identifies a contractors internal management program encompassing the protection, preservation, accounting for, and control of Government Property from acquisition, disposition through contract closeout. Contractors Property Management System
Property Management System Audit Standard Audit-A systematic review in accordance with GAGAS of the Contractors PMS where all applicable Outcomes/Processes, Process Segments, and Criteria are reviewed. This may take place through a plant visit for itinerants or where a PA is resident at the Contractor site.. Limited Audit-This is sometimes referred to as a desk audit because it involves a systematic review of the Contractors PMS generally without the benefit of a plant visit. A limited audit may be done with the assistance of other Government technical representatives, e.g., Quality Assurance Representative, Industrial Specialist, etc. A plant visit may be considered necessary by the PA based upon risk factors and assessment of these factors.
Property Management System Audit FAR 52.245-1(b) Property Management (1) The Contractor shall have a system of internal controls to manage (control, use, preserve, protect, repair and maintain) Government property in its possession. The system shall be adequate to satisfy the requirements of this clause. In doing so, the Contractor shall initiate and maintain the processes, systems, procedures, records, and methodologies necessary for effective and efficient control of Government property.
Property Management System Audit The written procedures serve as a standard of performance for the Contractors processes, systems, procedures, records, and methodologies. Contractor employees are expected work to this standard. Internal and External auditors will periodically examine the Contractors Property Management System to see how well the Contractor complies with their written procedures. With well established standard one can readily determine if the Contractor meets or exceeds it as well as when they are non-compliant.
52.245-1(g) Systems analysis (1) The Government shall have access to the contractor's premises and all Government property, at reasonable times, for the purposes of reviewing, inspecting and evaluating the Contractor's property management plan(s), systems, procedures, records, and supporting documentation that pertains to Government property. This access includes all site locations and, with the Contractors consent, all subcontractor premises. Scheduling and performing an audit is dependent upon the risk the Contractors PMS poses to the Government. As the risks increase the urgency and frequency of the audit will increase.
